Application for Enrolment
A parent/guardian applying to enrol a child in a government school should complete an Application for Enrolment form. Please complete one form per child. Noranda PS is a local-intake school.
Permanent Australian residents and those children holding an approved visa subclass are entitled to be enrolled, although not necessarily at a particular school unless the school has a ‘local-intake area’. Where the school has a local-intake area, an eligible child whose place of residence is within that area is guaranteed enrolment in the compulsory years of schooling (Pre-primary to Year 6). Children whose usual place of residence is not in the local-intake area are accommodated where possible. If the school has further capacity to accommodate children from outside the local-intake area, after making provision for local-intake area needs, consideration is made by the principal. Those overseas students who do not have an entitlement to enrol in a public school may be enrolled on a full fee paying basis under conditions which the school will outline.
When you enrol your child at Noranda Primary School, please check that you have the following :
- Birth certificate
- Identity documents (if applicable)
- Immunisation certificate
- Court order (if applicable)
- Proof of address
If your child is not born in Australia, you must provide :
- Confirmation of enrolment or evidence of permission to transfer provided by Education and Training International (if holding an International full fee student visa, sub class 571) ; or
- Evidence of the visitor and temporary resident visa (other than sub class 571 referred to above); or
- Evidence of the visa for which the student has applied (if the student holds a bridging visa)
This information is required by the Western Australian Department of Education and Training to meet legal obligations. All other information is needed to meet the purposes outlined below.
While it is not a legal requirement to provide all of the details requested in the Enrolment Form, the information is sought to enable the Department to :
- Undertake administrative and child/student care responsibilities including maintaining emergency contact information
- Communicate with you about important matters;
- Provide first aid and plan for student health support requirements;
- Collect necessary statistical information and undertake analysis of the composition and performance of the student population; and
- Meet State and National reporting requirements.
It is compulsory to advise of change of details in relation to student’s name, usual place of residence and/or name and usual place of residence of Parent/Guardian/Carer.
Kindergarten Immunisation Status
Since 22 July 2019, Section 141D of the Public Health Act 2016, requires schools to only enrol a Kindergarten student who provides acceptable evidence of immunisation status, or who is eligible to enrol as an exempt child because of particular family circumstances.
For parents of students with disability
In order to provide an appropriate education program the school may require specific information relating to your child’s disability and personal needs to enable the school to make any necessary teaching and learning adjustments. The school may also use the information you provide when applying for specialist resources or services and/or supplementary funding to support your child’s education.
The Western Australian Government fully funds Kindergarten for age-eligible children in public schools and supplements the cost of Kindergarten in Catholic and independent schools. Children may be enrolled in Kindergarten in one school only, either public or private.
Students in the pre-compulsory year of schooling (Kindergarten) are guaranteed a place in a public school. Where possible this will be their local school. The following selection criteria are to be applied in considering applications for enrolment:
|First Priority||Second Priority||Third Priority||Fourth Priority|
|Child residing in the local-intake area who has a sibling also enrolled at the school in the current year, and who lives nearest the school.||Child in the local-intake area who does not have a sibling enrolled at the school in the current year, and who lives nearest the school.||Child not residing in the local-intake area who has a sibling also enrolled at the school in the current year, and who lives nearest the school.||Child not residing in the local-intake area who does not have a sibling enrolled at the school in the current year, and who lives nearest the school.|
Will be the responsibility of the parents/guardians.
Should you disagree with a school’s advice regarding your application for enrolment please contact the principal in the first instance. The Coordinator Regional Operations at your Education Regional Office can provide advice if a concern has not been resolved. Information about formal disputes can be obtained from the school, the Education Regional Office or the Department’s Enrolment Policy which can be found at http://www.det.wa.edu.au/policies.
